In Which We Embarrass a Family Member – Graduations, Part One

May 16, 2011 at 3:27 am (Best of the Best - My Favorites, Random Thoughts, The Serious Stuff)

This is the year for graduations in my family; my sister from college and my son from high school.

Friday the 13th was sister’s graduation; she graduated with a degree in Sociology, emphasis on human services.

The motley crew

Here’s the motley crew there for graduation – dad, two of my nephews,  her husband and mine, one of her grandbabies, her best friend and husband, and assorted other friends.  Nope, we have no clue who those kids are in the back of the second picture; ignore them.

The rest of the motley crew

But this isn’t the embarrassing part- the video is the embarrassing part.  A part that will be repeated later this week when son graduates.

So, now my sister are a gradumate. And we are all so proud.
She is the second person called in the video – make sure your sound is on!
OK, I’ve linked the video, because I cannot convert it on my puter – so here it is! In which we embarrass my sister in public.

I’m compelled to blog about this

May 9, 2011 at 6:43 pm (Humor too funny to NOT share, Random Thoughts)

On a local forum I belong to there’s this guy.  He’s real good at stating non-factual “facts”, and just plain blurting.  Well, about a week or so ago, he got “incorporated” , supposedly.  And now he has this disclaimer posted to the effect that no one can quote anything of his ever anywhere in the universe.  Especially on this specific forum.  Sorry buddy – you signed the TOS, which clearly states that anything you post there becomes part of their property and public domain- standard forum TOS stuff.  So, of course, lots of people started quoting him as a way of poking the crazy.

I decided to have a serious conversation with him about it, since, as a part time writer of all things history, copyright is something I need to know.  he decided I was confused, so I posted copyright law, The DMCA, and so forth.  Amazingly, the topic of quoting on the forum is dropped.

Now he’s claiming people are quoting him in their blogs, and that he’s spoken with his REAL ESTATE attorney who told him how illegal that is, and how he’s going to sue several people in our community. A real estate attorney, cause, yeah, you know how much they focus on copyright law.

People are laughing all up and down this valley.

Sometimes, you just wonder about your neighbors.

So, now he’s been discussed in a blog, but not quoted, with no identifying factors except to those very few local people who actually read my blog and who know my real name – all four of them.  They’re also laughing.

Just…yeah.   Don’t ya just love some people?

I’ll await my summons and I’ll invite you all to come see the show.  Bring some cash, cause we gave another local the right to the consessions. You’re gonna want popcorn for this.
